I remember reading years ago how Stevie Wonder would always eat his dessert before his main meal, my reaction to this was a feeling of both disgust and curiosity. Stevie’s unconventional eating habits aside, wouldn’t it be great if there were restaurants that just served dessert? It seems that I’m not alone with this thought; the first restaurant dedicated to the sweet stuff was opened last year in London’s Hotel Cafe Royal, where three tasting menus are available from 18:00 – 22:30.
This concept continues with Scottish Pastry Chef and winner of BBC2’s Bake off Crème de la Crème, Helen Vass, who has been treating sweet fiends with her popular pop-up dessert restaurant, Dulce in Glasgow. Lucky for those of us living south of the border, Helen is setting up her Dulce pop-up in London for the first time at a Victorian Bath House for a Valentine’s special.
Camm & Hooper’s Victorian Bath House is on the right side of opulence – a perfect setting for Dulce’s indulgent desserts. Guests will be spoilt with an Amuse Bouche, followed by thee sumptuous desserts, all paired with a selection of Spanish wines. Helen’s desserts are inspired by her time working as a pastry chef in Barcelona and on Valentine’s Day, guests are invited to join Helen at a sharing table to watch the award winning chef whip, caramelise, knead and roll to create a mixture of sweet and salty delicacies.
Whether you are looking to treat your significant other, or perhaps you simply have a sweet tooth, whatever the reason, join Helen this 14th and 15th February (from 19:30) for this special event.
